From your hotel in the upscale Brickell neighborhood, you’ll explore the gleaming high-rises of Downtown, historic Coral Gables, the celebrity mansions of Miami Beach, and the trendy Art Deco neighborhood of South Beach. You’ll also get your first taste of Cuba, as we tour vibrant Little Havana, a thriving, energetic community formed by Miami’s prosperous Cuban exile community.

DAY 1: Arrive Miami

Your hotel is located in Miami’s upscale Brickell section, close to shops, restaurants, and nightlife. This evening, meet your Vantage Adventure Leader for a Welcome Drink, followed by a Welcome Dinner.

 Included meals: Dinner

DAY 2: Miami & Little Havana

Today’s panoramic city tour takes you past the palatial residences of movie and sports stars, as we follow the sugar-white sand of  Miami Beach to South Beach, home of an eclectic street scene in the midst of pastel-colored Art Deco buildings. In historic Coral Gables, see the venerable Biltmore Hotel, which served as a hospital during World War II. Lunchtime finds us in Little Havana, the cultural, political, and social center of the Cuban-exile community, where we’ll enjoy a tasty traditional lunch in the popular La Carreta restaurant. Cultural Discoveries: During our walking tour of this thriving neighborhood, we’ll drop by a lively game of dominoes, and stop into a café for a Cuban coffee among the locals. A visit to the Bay of Pigs Museum strikes a more somber note, as we hear from a veteran of the famed Brigade 2506, the group of Cuban exiles that was recruited by the CIA to train for the secret, and ultimately ill-fated, Bay of Pigs invasion. He’ll describe his experiences, and give the exiles’ perspective on the Cuban Revolution, which overthrew Cuba’s authoritarian Batista government in 1959. 

 Included meals: Breakfast and Lunch


DAY 3: Miami / Fly to Santiago de Cuba, Cuba

Now that you’ve gotten a sample Cuban culture, it’s on to the island itself, as you transfer to the airport for your short flight to Cuba, where you’ll meet the rest of your group.

 Included meals: Breakfast
